    Just received my refund for registering. $5 dollars !!! I have read the many many heated debates on rights , why and why not to register. Everyone has their own opinion and beliefs ( i respect them all ) So please let's not re-debate that again. Just seen that many folks had not gotten theirs or thought it may be some lump return situation !!!

    Shockingly, I got my refund as well. Never thought it would happen. I'm still angry with myself for caving, but it's done - and I guess I don't have to worry about that any more. I've got my "papers". Ha.

    I'd given up all hope of seeing my precious fee again. But then I got the refund too!

    I'm registering next month so I guess I won't be getting one.

    Just checked. Got my $5 refund credited today (1/13).
    Why is the AMA recommending the delay? Seems a pointless recommendation.
